4.1 (local), the same on the remote X3.3.6 host:
<home> output: ^[[1~
<end> output: ^[[4~
linux:/usr/share/apps/konsole# egrep Home\|End default.Keytab
key Home  -Shift   : "\E[1~"
key End   -Shift   : "\E[4~"
remote has nothing like such a file.

all such files on local:
linux:/usr/share/apps/konsole# egrep Home\|End *eytab
default.Keytab:key Home  -Shift   : "\E[1~"
default.Keytab:key End   -Shift   : "\E[4~"
linux.keytab:key Home   : "\E[1~"
linux.keytab:key End    : "\E[4~"
vt100.keytab:key Home   : "\E[H"
vt100.keytab:key End    : "\E[F"
vt420pc.keytab:key Home   : "\E[H"
vt420pc.keytab:key End    : "\E[F"
x11r5.keytab:key Home           : "\E[1~"
x11r5.keytab:key End            : "\E[4~"

On all aother settings like vt100 or vt420, I do not get any result.
The terminal type is set to "xterm" by Konsole and the matching terminfo file 
is present.

It does but it has no effect on the functioning.

There is no problem with the keys in xterm or any other KDE2.2 program, only 
Konsole seems to be affected :-/
My X-Keyboard is defined like this:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"
        Option      "XkbModel" "microsoft"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "de"
This is exactly the same as in KDE2.1 and X4.0.3 (I did not change both at 
the same time, so it's also not the combination with the X version. 
KDE2.1->2.2 changed last.)

Actually it is funny because before the change to 2.2, it work locally but 
not on remote hosts (with debian 2.2 and old xlibs). I wonder why there were 
reasons to change the whole X keyboard codes thingie. It seems that X 
developers love the change and incompatibility :-/
And why, actually, does need X another keyboard driver than the 
console/kernel??? Are there so many differnent ways to read keyboard input???
This is really confusing (and probably very OT).
